The Australian National Flag

Guidelines for the Australian National Flag: -

  • The flag should be raised quickly and carefully and lowered slowly.
  • Do not raise the flag earlier than sunrise or lower the flag later than sunset.
  • Only fly at night if the flag is lit-up.
  • The Australian flag should not share a flagpole with any other flag.
  • Do not fly the flag if it is damaged.
  • Do not use the flag to drape a table.
  • The Australian flag should not lie on the ground.
  • Do not salute a flag that has already been lowered.

Many local Members of Parliament provide Australian flags free of charge to community groups like Scouts. If you’re in need of a new flag or your current flag is looking tired or tattered, you should contact your local Members of Parliament’s office.
